Thanks in anticipation.

I can't help you with your request Richard, but it made me google it, and found this interesting piece.

Andrew,
that is some article that you found. Having lived in the region for many years, I know a lot of the area in the discussion. I also know what the NP policy/attitude was in the 80's and early 90's when certain senoir NP rangers had control over the area. One of those very "astute gentlemen" said to me (and a mate of mine, when we were travelling in the area): Quote: "NP's are for rangers to protect and study the enviroment, not for the public". We just stood there stunned. Then they got on their dirt bikes and "ripped" the place up as they left. We just stood there, shaking our heads. Unfortunately, both those rangers were later "promoted" (because you couldn't sack them) and moved to Sydney.

Yes well those guys (Rangers according to you) will be parks workers (labourers) not Rangers and that is not the attitude or policy of NPs, if it was then there wouldn't be camping areas, would there?

Yep; did just before New Year - came from Cotter Dam, Mt Corree, Flea Creek, Brindabella Road, Barnetts Road. Camped at Dubbo Creek; then south to Long Plain. Track quite OK. Some water in creeks south of Dubbo Creek but no problem getting though (in standard 80 series with BFG ATs). The flat at Dubbo Creek has a number of bogs but just walk around and you will find a good route across. Dubbo Creek is nice spot to camp - had it to ourselves with plenty of wood - altho brumbies did not seem too happy. Gerry

As an update, we ended up towing 3 camper trailers through at the weekend without any dramas at all. Only a couple of fallen trees that needed negotiating.
